TomoTherapy treats cancer with radiation. It uses one of the world’s most advanced delivery systems. This sophisticated technology provides safe, effective radiation treatment.
We've been offering TomoTherapy for a long time. We're one of the first in the country to offer the latest version of TomoTherapy: TomoHD™.
How TomoHD Works
TomoHD allows us to create a plan tailored to your unique case. It also means treatment that's precise and without pain.
More versatile than traditional version, TomoHD can target the tumor in two different ways:
- Helical mode has beams that rotate 360 degrees around you. They produce a radiation dose that fits the exact size and shape of your tumor. They don't hurt healthy tissue.
- Direct mode uses a stationary beam at precise angles.
Respiratory gating allows us to treat body parts that move. For instance, we can target tumors in the lungs, which move as you breathe. Not all technologies can do this with accuracy.
